Yalpanam kozhukattai/யாழ்ப்பாணம் கொழுக்கட்டை

We got to know this through “tamilini” sweet shop which has many srilankan sweets…this kozhukattai is famous ,because of its unique taste…..it is made with brown rice flour and moong dal…both the filling and outer gives wonderful taste…As they say healthy food is not tasty,u should try this version…


Brown rice flour-1 cup

Hot water- 2 cups

Salt to taste

For stuffing

Half cooked moong dal-1/3 cup

Coconut, grated-1/3 cup

Sugar– 2-3 tbsps


Boil the water and salt, sprinkle the flour slowly and stir it non stop until it forms a tight dough..

Cover and rest it for ten minutes

I used double house puttu maavu

Cook the dal on stove top, drain the water, add coconut and sugar

Apply some oil on a zip-lock and spread dough

Keep the filling in center 

and press without removing the zip-lock, and seal the edges

Steam it for 7-8 minutes, and switch off the flame

Let it cool for 2 minutes and then remove the kozhukattai
